Absolutely stunning coffee. The Staff have a great knowledge and it shows. The cakes are completely to die for. So fresh just being made next door. Hard to walk past and not go in because it smells so good.

Very relaxing place for very large sandwiches. The coffee is delicious and the choice of cakes are amazing. My only negative comment would be the thickness of the sandwiches which could be overcome with a knife and fork (supplied)
